Multiple TCP Listeners RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am starting multiple TCP listeners for 10 TCP ports. I get the first connection request successfully lets say for 1st port.

    I complete my Read/Write operation sucessfully and once done, I close the client reference and again wait for a new connection request.

    But I am not able to get the next connection request. In the client side, I can see that its sending me the request and but am unable to receive it.

    Moreover, this problem is coming only when the listener ports are more than 5. Till 4 ports am able to listen and connect again and again.

    I am using Listener.AcceptTcpClient method.

    P.S. Using BeginAcceptTcpClient is not a solutuon in my case, as I cant use asynchronous calls.

  • Hi,

    Without the code, it is hard to tell something, maybe you can try to refer to the following code:

    System.Net.Sockets.TcpListener listener =   
                        new System.Net.Sockets.TcpListener();  
                    // Block the listening thread until a new client connects.  
                    // If several clients try to connect, one will be served,  
                    // and the others will be queued.  
                    System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient client =   
                    // Create a new thread which will handle the client, and  
                    // continue waiting for other clients.  
                        new System.Threading.WaitCallback(HandleClient));  

    And maybe you can try to use the NetTool to debug the network.

    For more information, please try to refer to:
